By MARGARET SCOTT
Commencement exercises for the
four high school graduates were held

school auditorium. Those graduating

Dan Dinges and Robert Campbell.
The commencement address was
given by Prof. Herman Brockhaus
of Pacific university, Forest Grove,
who impressed upon the graduates
that we must vary our interests and
way of living instead of having a
definite routine day by day.
Dan Dinges delivered the saluta
tory address and Wilma Tucker gave
the valedictory. Joyce Biddle pre
sented the class gift which was a
beautiful radio. The Lexington
school octette, consisting of Cather

Mrs. Lilian C. Turner presented

And that's just the beer tax revenue this state
itself collects ... to lift the burden of direct tax
ation from your shoulders. Nationwide, beer
contributes over a million dollars a day to the
cost of government. Think what that means in
paying for relief, in public works, in old age
assistance right in your own community.
Then think of the million new jobs that beer
made. And then add to that a 100 million dollar
market for farmers' crops !
How can we keep these benefits ... for you
and for us? Brewers of America realize this
depends on keeping beer retailing as wholesome
as beer itself. They want to help public officials
in every possible way. They cannot enforce laws.
But they can and mil cooperate J
